VSC #33 “ANYTHING GOES”

Happy April! It’s the first of the month so we have a new challenge for you. This month we will have an “Anything Goes ” theme. Upload your creations for a chance to win $10 towards our shop. 

Ok so for my project I made a tag and a card for my son for easter. Every year I buy my boys an easter basket and fill it up with some fave candies. I used my “easter fun ” stamp set for the card and tag. I was inspired by the talented Mary-Anne (who was our GDT member for the month of March) She had added arms and legs to the eggs and I loved it! I had to try it out. For the tag I used watercolors and for the card with the eggs sitting on a string lol I used Copic markers. I loved creating these and I know my son will love them. You can pick up the “Easter fun ” stamp set here. Now don’t forget to stop by our challenge blog for more DT inspiration and to upload your creation for a chance to win! Happy crafting!

I am so excited to be part of this blog hop and share with you how I stay organized with my baby aka color crush planner.

The color crush planner comes with dashboards which are clear inserts that are meant for you to stick important reminders and so on. What I like to do is stick my food shopping list and my craft shopping list and use my “Organize it!” stamp set to specify what each list is for as shown below 


Also, when I do not have the time to neatly add something in my weekly pages I jot it down on a sticky note and add it to my dash board for a later time. 

I like to jot down birthdays and payment dates on my monthly calender only because there isn’t much room. I will sometimes add important events. Since the boxes are tiny on my monthy inserts I like to use the icons from my planner stamps. 

Here is how I decorate my weekly pages. I use my stamps and also some custom stickers I make myself. 

Forgot to mention my 1×1 mini acrylic block I use for stamping. I will soon be carrying these minis in the shop.

I also started a weight loss/get healthy journey and created a stamp set to help me with just that. 

  

Here are a few things that I use when planning.

I have a passport holder that I use as a pen / sticky/notes/ clips/stamp holder. 

And here is my bucket of target $1 spot stuff lol

Well I hope you enjoyed my post and I hope it was helpful. Loved sharing with you how I stay organized.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Next on the Hop is Kimberly’s blog. 

 

Guest Designer Inspiration

Hi everyone! I have a special guest for you today. Mary-Anne is our guest designer this month and she has a super cute tag she created using our new “Easter fun” stamp set. Read more about how Mary-Anne created this awesome project.



Looking for a cute tag for those Easter gifts? Vanessa at V’s Sweet Ideas just released this adorable Easter Fun set. It has a large basket image and cute little eggs that you can personalize with faces if you like. 

I wanted to make a tag using this basket so I stamped the basket with Memento ink and then, using some masking,  I stamped the eggs inside. I colored the eggs and basket with Prisma Color pencils and blended it with baby oil. I then flipped the basket stamp over and inked up the reverse to get the outline for the inside of the folding tag. I finished off the inside by stamping the fun sentiment that comes in this set in Memento ink again. Finally,  after fussy cutting both front and back sections I scored the yellow inside part and attached the front panel to make my tag. 


 
Thank you so much Mary-Anne for sharing this adorable tag. You can check out more of Mary-Anne’s beautiful projects on her Flickr. Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
